Best printer I ever had
This printer is the best featured printer and the best buy I ever had. I particularly like the feature to scan 35mm 0negatives and slides. The results of various slides I scanned is very acceptable for a 8" by 10" print. I would advise any one to purchase this printer.

Best Quality - at an (ink) price!
I just had to replace my old Canon PIXMA MG8120 - after a number of years, I had just worn it out. But because it had served me so well, I shopped around and ended up getting the 'new' version - this MG8220. It's faster than my old printer, has everything that I need and will, I hope, last as long as my MG8120.
But - buyer beware! - as much as I love this printer it still just drinks ink at an alarming rate. I only use genuine Canon ink and paper and have tons of ink left (one more reason I got this model) left over from my old printer. This is NOT a low-ink consumption printer by any means.
But if you want the very highest print quality, easy wireless and AirPrint printing, flawless scanning, etc., this may be just the printer for you.

very frustrating selection panel
This printer does print high quality copies. However, the panel of buttons to select what you want is very, very confusing. The printer seems to get "confused" when I try printing something remotely from my computer, and whirrs and clicks forever before I finally coax it to print. I've had the printer for about 8 months and it's a challenge any time I want to print. Today I tried to copy something, and a warning came on saying the rear paper tray was empty and needed filling. FIRST: I had no idea it had a rear paper tray. Second, neither I, nor my 5 degrees from MIT computer junkie husband can figure out how or what to push to make it print from the front paper tray again.
Really, people at Canon, does it have to be THIS hard?
Would not buy again unless you are a real techie.

Great overall printer/scanner
This has just about every feature you could ask for. Air Print enabled, wireless print and scan, beautiful photo printer on glossy paper, color print on printable CDs. Inks get a little pricey depending on usage. Overall very pleased
